When the tiniest piece of dirt can affect the workings of a modern engine, the cleanliness of both the workshop and parts themselves cannot be understated. Cataclean® and Revive both offer solutions to common fuel system problems with minimal effort.
Established in 1995 in Liverpool, and still produced in the UK today, Cataclean® is a fuel and engine system cleaner.
Cataclean® cleans the catalytic converter and reduces the harmful carbon build-up in the valves, injectors, oxygen sensors, and EGR valves. It has been proven to restore performance and fuel efficiency, as well as lower emissions. Using Cataclean® every 3 months as recommended offers numerous benefits to the engine and extends the life of the vehicle.
Not only is Cataclean® a useful tool in vehicle maintenance, but it can also assist in diagnostics. If a catalytic converter appears to be failing and a Cataclean® treatment clears the fault then it becomes clear that another exhaust or emissions part is causing the catalytic converter to fail, ensuring that time is not wasted replacing the catalytic converter unnecessarily.
Carried by all RAC patrols, Cataclean® is a highly trusted brand by both professionals and consumers, making for a great product to boost your retail offering.
The majority of turbo failures stem from oil contamination/ starvation and damage from a foreign object. Therefore it’s vital to keep the engine and turbocharger as clean as possible. Adapted from aviation technologies, Revive automotive treatments clean turbos to noticeably restore fuel economy, power and reduce exhaust emissions.
Eco-friendly, non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable and water-based, the treatment is easy to use and sprayed into the vehicle’s intake system before the turbo inlet whilst the engine is running. As the fluid passes through the engine, the active ingredients lock on to built-up oily/carbon deposits and strips away surface layers. These tiny carbonised particles are no larger than the soot particles the engine naturally generates, making the process safe for vehicles fitted with catalysts and filters.
Revive is recommended as the first action to resolve a turbo fault as a more cost-efficient and effective method of revitalising the turbo without replacing it. However, it should be noted that Revive cannot resolve all turbo related issues, such as worn parts or seized components.
Both Revive and Cataclean® allow motor factors to expand their retail offering and garages to offer additional services with minimal effort on their end, saving both time and money.
